(September 19, 2011) As part of TxDOT’s widening project, traffic on Preston Road will be switched so that north and southbound traffic will flow on opposite sides of the median between Eldorado Parkway and US 380 on Monday, September 19 (weather permitting). The traffic switch will begin at 9:00 a.m. and is expected to be completed by 4:30 p.m.
Motorists should expect intermittent delays on Preston Road between Eldorado Parkway and US 380 during the day as the traffic switch is being made. Through traffic can use an alternate route such as Dallas Parkway to the west or Custer Road to the east. Motorists are urged to use caution in the area and to watch for flaggers.
Once the traffic switch is completed, all six lanes on Preston Road will be open to traffic between Eldorado Parkway and US 380.
